The location is great, right next to the train station and with some nice views, if you get a street window. However, the mattress was very stiff and hard. I was a bit surprised, because in an Ibis you would find more comfortable beds and this was a 4-star Novotel. Also, the a/c heating started hissing at some point during the night with no way of turning it down or off. Not to mention the false fire alarm from 4 o'clock in the morning. Also, pretty expensive parking. I paid 13.5 Euro for one night stay. Otherwise, standard Novotel room on a budget.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view towards the train station

We had our business team building workshop. While the preparation seemed efficient. The execution lacked - beginning at check-in. Although only booked for one night - everyone was planned (according to the hotel) for 3 nights.
As mentioned in other reviews: the rooms next to your's, might as well be your's. You can here the snoring, talking, flushing toilets.... While the room was clean and functional, it came across as very 'basic' (like Holiday Inn in the 80's).
We were not given a key to lock the conference room - and staff did not understand the need for this (talk about a company lap top getting stolen - 'oh, but there are only hotel guests here - not true, because the area is accessible for everyone.)
Food for lunch was boring and without taste (veggies soft, meat dry). Breakfast was also not a highlight.

the exception was the bar staff: professional and quick. Towards 11 pm it really filled and took a while longer for the drinks to come. But always nice service and good drinks. the room itself lacks atmosphere (as does the lobby).

Why this rating - because the business rates for the conference were competitive.

Very good location and hotel could be very good if managed properly. The bath did not empty properly and the basin plug did not work so clearly there is a poor maintenance regime in this hotel. The restaurant offered such a small choice for dinner as to be derisory. Apparently they still had a limited menu due to Christmas---this was the 11th January so really no excuse! the waitress dropped a wine glass on the table and the debris narrowly missed my colleague's eye--- hardly any apology. Clearly the waitress badly trained and the restaurant manager should have done more. Atmosphere in restaurant more akin to the Marie Celeste.
I have stayed in various Novotel properties in Germany and generally find that they are not well managed so what does this say about the Novotel Germany management --- not much as I fine them good in France and UK generally and good value so Germany needs to get its act t.ogether

Great, great breakfast and staff, but horrible room, even as seniors we asked for something quiet. Superior room was small. We booked because of advertised spa ... yes, one exists, but mostly non functioning. No staff available. Signs said "closed" although in fact the sauna was open.

Room Tip: visit the room and make sure you are not near the center of the hotel
